Description: http://www.ted.com Plants behave in some oddly intelligent ways: fighting predators, maximizing food opportunities ... But can we think of them as actually having a form of intelligence of their own? Italian botanist Stefano Mancuso presents intriguing evidence.TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes.

We already know that plants have all our senses (they can see, hear, touch, smell and see) without the organs usually associated with them and they have some more specific exclusive senses. We also know that they have very important and intense social lifes. But, are plants intelligent? Can they solve problems, communicate, and navigate their surroundings? In this talk, Stefano Mancuso presents a new paradigm in our understanding of the vegetal world. He argues that plants process information, sleep, remember, and signal to one another-showing that, far from passive machines, plants are intelligent and aware. Stefano Mancuso is one of the most important figures in the field of plants neurobiology in the world. He is a lecturer in the University of Florence, director of the International Laboratory of Plant Neurobiology (LINV) in Florence, Italy, and a founder of the International Society for Plant Signaling and Behavior. He is the author of several books and more than 250 scientific papers published in international magazines and journals. "La Repubblica" newspaper has listed him among the 20 people who will change our lives. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

ROOT SYSTEM:The underground part of the plant is called Root system.The underground main axis of the plant body is called Root.It is the prolongation of radicle of the embryo.It is positively geotropic or negatively phototropic.It is not differentiated into nodes & internodes. It is non-chlorophyllous or brown coloured.It does not possess leaves, buds, flowers and fruits.Lateral roots are produced from main axis in acropetal succession.Lateral roots are formed from inner region of the main axis(pericycle). So these are called ENDOGENOUS ORGANS.The small hair like outgrowth present on the tips of lateral roots and main axis are called ROOT HAIRS.Root hairs are exogenous organs.Root hairs are found in mesophytes and xerophytes and absent in hydrophytes. The protective layer present around the root tip is called ROOT CAP.Root cap is made up of a dead tissue called CALYPTROGEN. Hence it is also called CALYPTRA.Root cap is well developed in mesophytes and xerophytes, absent in hydrophytes.In free floating hydrophytes root pockets are present.In angiosperms two types of root systems are present.They are 1.Tap root system2. Fibrous root system or Adventitious root system. TAP ROOT SYSTEM:The central main axis is called Tap root.Tap root is formed by the prolongation of radicle of the embryo.Lateral roots are produced obliquely in all directions from tap root in acroptealsuccession.It is most commonly found in DICOTYLEDONS. FIBROUS ROOT SYSTEM or ADVENTITIOUS ROOT SYSTEM:Tap root formed by the prolongation of radicle is short lived and degenarates after some time. See the differences between root cap and root pocket: ROOT CAP:1.It is found in mesophytes and xerophytes. 2.It is made up of a dead tissue called calyptrogens. 3.It is a tight fitting structure.4.It can be regenerated.5.It provides protection to root tip and also involve in the penetration of the root into the soil. ROOT POCKET:1.It is found in free floating hydrophytes. 2.it is not made up of calyptrogens. 3.it is loose fitting structure.4.it cannot be regenerated.5.It is involved in the buoyancy of the plant. A bunch of new roots are produced from the base of the stem as fibres. So these roots are called fibrous roots and the root system is called fibrous root system.In this, roots are not formed from radicle. So these are also called Adventitious roots, and the root system is called Adventitious root system.It is most commonly found in MONOCOTYLEDONS. FUNCTIONS OF ROOT SYSTEM:Roots provide anchorage to the plant by fixing it into the soil.Roots absorb water and minerals from the soil.Roots conduct the absorbed water and minerals to the shoot system.

Time lapse sequence shot using Pentax K110D and Harbortronics DigiSnap 2100 set to take a frame each 14 minutes 24 seconds. The time lapse spans 9 days. Two 90 watt compact floresecent lights where used for both the camera shooting light and the grow lights. The lights were set on a timer for 18 hours on and 6 off (for the health of the plants). The jump in the video is the 6 hour gap in the darkness. Amazing how fast the radishes grew. Music by Roland White - Gaieté Acadienne [CD-Trying to Get to You]. Hope you enjoy.

This time lapse video of pepper plants roots growing took about 20 days to make. The plants were indoors under 270w of CFL grow lights, the water had some nutrients in, and the system is an aeroponics system made by Aero-Pot. Aeroponics is a form of hydroponics which uses mist to feed plants roots, this allowed me to film the doors between each misting so we can watch them grow. Pretty amazing!
